Transition from FTP to SFTP

Due to security vulnerabilities within FTP (File Transfer Protocol), all FTP-based SeaBASS services, including data submission and FCHECK (via FTP) requests, will be permanently phased out on 19 March 2018.


SFTP (SSH File Transfer Protocol), which offers similar functionality and uses individual accounts for each data submitter, will serve as the replacement.


We have updated our data submission instructions with the new procedures for how SeaBASS data submitters may apply for SFTP access to submit their data to the SeaBASS archive and how to run FCHECK requests via SFTP on SeaBASS data files.


We apologize for any inconvenience these changes may cause.
